Pemex has confirmed that 4 workers were killed and 2 injured in a fire on a production platform in the Bay of Campeche off of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.  Water there is generally pretty shallow, around 100 feet deep, and well control is usually performed above water level.  The platform is still on fire and 8 fireboats are battling the blaze.

We’ll keep following the story.
